Flan di Verdure
Multi-colour vegetable flan

Serves 6

800 g mixed vegetables (such as leek, carrot, zucchini, broccoli or cauliflower)
½ L liquid cream
4 whole eggs
4 egg whites
grated parmesan
salt and pepper
4 T olive oil

Cut the vegetable/s of choice into small pieces, wash and then add to a saucepan with the olive oil and let cook on a medium flame for about 25 minutes. Let cool, then place in a bowl, adding all of the remaining ingredients. With a hand mixer (not beaters) blend all ingredients together. Take small moulds, similar to those you would use for creme caramel, then cover all of the inside with a light coating of melted butter. Fill the moulds to about ¾ with the mixture. Place the moulds in a baking dish filled to about ¾ with water. This creates a bain-marie. Place carefully in the oven to cook at 160°C for 40 minutes.

** A mix of any available vegetables can be used for this recipe. **
** To make a flan of multi-coloured layers, cook and mix the different types of vegetables separately, as above. When filling the moulds, just alternate the different coloured vegetables. **
